Tribunal Process Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

Please join us for our employment law workshop on Thursday 29 November which will address common pitfalls in the employment tribunal process, show you how to put yourself in a strong position to defend claims and identify the practical lessons to be taken from case law.

Why attend?

Did you know that since employment tribunal fees were abolished:

  • ACAS has reported that it is receiving around 500 more early conciliation notices per week
  • The Ministry of Justice has reported that employment tribunal claims have increased by 90%

This is your opportunity to take advantage of Goodman Derrick’s team of employment law experts in a practical session which will cover:

  • The ACAS early conciliation process
  • Steps on receipt of a claim
  • Practical points on preparing your defence
  • Evidential requirements: documents and witnesses
  • A case study to guide you through the process in a practical way
  • Tips to take from the tribunals: what are the judgments saying about procedural points
  • A practical look at what you can do to put yourself in a strong position to defend employment claims

Who should attend?

  • Human Resources managers & advisers
  • Those with responsibility for HR/employment issues in the workplace

If that wasn't enough, on 7 March 2019 we will be holding a mock employment tribunal workshop to give you practical guidance on how to deal with employment litigation should you find yourself in the unfortunate position of defending a claim.
